Please see the deletion rational at Commons:Deletion requests/Files in Per nomination means that I agree with the person who nominated the files for deletion. The license mentioned at the website the logos are taken from doesn't contain a license that is explicit enough to for fill the requirements stated in our licensing policy.

It met the licensing needed to be used at Wikipedia until some arsehole moved it to Wikimedia Commons. Next time leave it where it belongs! 18:48, 16 August 2017 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by IQ125 (talk • contribs) 18:48, 16 August 2017 (UTC)

Dear IQ125,
Please refrain from swearing and/or making personal attack. Have you read the "license" at the webpage I linked? I'm not an expert on en-wiki policy but I rather doubt that they accept files that violate the licensing policy which all projects need to follow. Natuur12 (talk) 18:59, 16 August 2017 (UTC)
You could upload a local copy under fair use if policy allows this for the article about though. If you need a copy off the file to do so, please let me know. Natuur12 (talk) 19:11, 16 August 2017 (UTC)

Licensing questionEdit

Hi Natuur12. Was wondering if you could clarify the licensing of an image you deleted at Commons. The same file has been uploaded locally to Wikipedia and is being discussed at en:Wikipedia:Files for discussion/2017 August 21#File:Imagechess.jpg. I am not an admin on either Wikipedia or Commons, so I am unable to see how the Commons file was licensed. Thanks in advance. -- Marchjuly (talk) 22:01, 21 August 2017 (UTC)

Dear Marchjuly,
The file was uploaded under a cc-by-sa-3.0 license and the source didn't mention such a license. I don't believe that the claim that this logo is not creative enough to hold a copyright is correct. But this is always a bit subjective and I don't know how the English Wikipedia interprets US case law. Natuur12 (talk) 23:01, 21 August 2017 (UTC)
Thanks for clarifying things. First of all, I am not questioning your close. I think it was correct given the clear lack of permision for the cc licensing. My understanding, however, is that Wikipedia and Commons are basically the same when it comes to things like "PD-logo" of "PD-simple". Wikipedia does allow files to be uploaded locally as en:Template:PD-ineligible-USonly, but this is usually only when the file would be below COM:TOO#United States, but might be under copyright protection in the country of origin. This kind of thing often is occasionally for logos from the UK since the COM:TOO#United Kingdom is much lower than the TOO for the US. These files are uaually tagged with en:Template:Do not move to Commons for this reason. In this case, however, the original copyright holder ( appears to be a US based company, which means that either en:Template:PD-logo or en:Template:PD-simple would need to be used. I believe these are equivalent to {{PD-textlogo}} on Commons, so I've asked about this at COM:VP/C#Licensing question. If Commons won't accept this file as PD, then Wikipedia probably shouldn't either. -- Marchjuly (talk) 00:18, 22 August 2017 (UTC)
